Several years ago, Aubrey Daniels and James Daniels, wrote â€œMeasure of a Leader: the Legendary Leadership Formula for Producing Exceptional Performers and Outstanding Resultsâ€. Â The formula focuses on 4 elements:
- Momentum: How well do your followers respond to your direction?
- Commitment: Are your followers focused on your goals?
- Initiative: Are your followers working together?
- Reciprocity: Are your followers collectively working with the leader?
Close analysis shows that their approach is behavioral and offers support for the approach that ETW (Execute To Win; formerly Evaluate To Win) takes to measure cultural alignment, strategic job performance and leadership responsiveness.Â For instance, the Daniels note that one measure is the ability to â€cite an example of the valuesâ€ ; ETW measures cultural alignment by having people cite the mission and values â€“ and ask the person to give concrete examples of how they have acted consistent with them. Indeed, the behavioral pinpoints that the Daniels suggest in their â€œsample performance matrixâ€ (page 93) are similar to the sample recommended components that ETW offers its customers.
So, if you appreciate the behavioral approach that the Daniels recommend, then youâ€™ll love how ETW takes the concept to another level. Both are designed to help you â€œcreate profitable habits and improve performance at every level of your organization: Â For more information on ETW, visit www.eval2win.com and contact us for a 1-on-1 demo (firstname.lastname@example.org).
